DoFo came out today to land some haymakers on JT.

Why is there no Federal Vaccine Passport? Why do we have to wait until after this unneeded election?

a clear DOFO swing & a miss! The DOFO government absolutely did not ask the federal government to bring forward a federal vaccine passport/certificate; rather, it asked... pressed the federal government on a vaccine passport for international travel. Of course the federal government has been working on that for some time... working with the international community of nations in developing standards and implementing them towards a delivery in 'early fall' 2021 - while also working with provinces towards respective portals and related infrastructure to allow access to provincial health authority held vaccination records. Per Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino, in regards this international travel focused 'certificate':
The vaccine certificate will be common across all provinces, and will include the holder’s COVID-19 vaccination history, the date they got it, the type of jab they received and the location where they received their shot. It will be available to all citizens, permanent residents, and temporary residents living in Canada who are fully vaccinated.

further to a response provided by Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc:
Although the passport is being crafted with international travel in mind, the federal government is happy to work with the provinces to use it as a domestic proof-of-vaccination tool too. If the provinces wish to work with us in order to use our federal credentials within their province, we would be happy to work with them.

certainly, there is a mixed response by provincial governments/Premiers towards introducing vaccine passports/certificates for domestic use within their respective provinces.
